Mushroom Of The Year 2021
Mushrooms seem to get more and more popular every year, and 2021 was no different.
The world is becoming aware of the amazing power of mushrooms, and it truly is awesome to see!
But this year, there were actually TWO mushrooms that stood above the rest in terms of popularity.
1. Lion’s Mane
Lion’s Mane has always been a top-choice mushroom, but it was a clear winner in 2021.
With more people working from home and looking to stay productive, the “brain boosting” mushroom is an obvious choice!
The power of Lion’s Mane comes from two unique compounds – hericenones and erinacenes. This powerful duo is what drives cognitive benefits, and is not found anywhere else in nature.

2. Turkey Tail
Turkey Tail was a close runner up in terms of popularity in 2021.
More than ever, people are looking for powerful but natural immune system support- and Turkey tail is packed with more immune supporting fungal beta-glucans than any other mushroom.
Beta-glucans are special types of polysaccharides which are able to help boost our immune systems, and although all functional mushrooms have them, Turkey Tail is in a league of its own!

2021 also saw the release of “Fantastic Fungi” on Netflix. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should totally check it out!

In the movie, they highlight two powerful functional mushrooms- which are of course, Lion’s Mane and Turkey Tail!
To celebrate, we combined these two powerhouse mushrooms in one awesome bundle.
